Aromatherapy is the discipline that bets on the power of the sense of smell to stimulate the body’s sensory and extra sensory functions. It arises from the use of essential oils extracted from leaves, flowers, roots and stems. They can be used alone in healing and relaxation therapies, but are also used in the production of scented candles.
When candles burn, they easily spread the scent of essential oils through the air, creating an atmosphere that inspires peace and quiet in the room.
